About Us
Here at Holmquist Hazelnut Orchards, we are proud to be a fifth generation farm; family owned and operated. Our story begins in 1905 when John V. Holmquist made his way from Finland to help his father clear wilderness area for farming in Mt. Vernon, WA. On Independence Day of 1909, with vision and keen foresight, John V. Holmquist settled on his own heavily timbered acreage at Judson Lake. Over the course of time, a productive farm developed; raising crops of hay, oats, peas, beans, potatoes, and dairying. During the 1920’s, taking advantage of the rich soil and mild weather of the Northwest, the first hazelnut orchard was planted.
John V. Holmquist was deeply interested in the welfare of the community and was known for his contributions. We continue to honor John Victor and his mission to build relationships within the community, have strong industrial habits, and continue to be a part of local culture. With many generations of hard work and innovative thinking, we are pleased to offer you the highest quality products.

We currently support other local hazelnut farm(s) by purchasing their hazelnut crops, processing them further (as needed) and finally packing them. Working with the round varieties that are very similar to our own from the Skagit Valley has been exciting as we bring them to the forefront along with our own!
Practices
Quality and freshness are the driving factors in the harvest and production of our hazelnuts.
We and the farms we work with are conventional operations, but strive to be environmentally conscious. By-products such as the hazelnut shells, empty hazelnuts and husks are recycled into mulch. Growers that we work with use the hazelnut industry's farm safety plan and are compliant with WSDA's best management practices.
Our processing kitchen is WSDA certified and we use GAP/GMP practices. Our hazelnuts are Kosher certified and the raw hazelnuts are GMO free.
We support our local economy whenever possible.
